Could I host a website www.domain.com(:80) while having connections from a game client to www.domain.com(:25565) be forwarded to another IP?

Hello oschaus,

Thank you for your question regarding port 25565. I'm sorry but running a game server from your account is not an option in a shared environment. If you want to have both a site and then offer a separate subdomain for your customers to connect to a game server (elsewhere), you could use the Simple DNS editor to create a Name (which will become your subdomain) and point it to your game server through either the CNAME or IP address (A record).

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.
